to the act this year. president obama's inaugural address yesterday though, he recognizes the battle for voting rights isn't over. here's the president. >> obama: our journey is not complete a citizen is not forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. >> michael: now that he has been inaugurated, do you think voters going to the ballot is at risk. >> i think it is. the republicans are a minority party. they got the minority in the presidential and senate and over all house races they're not working with the demographic roots that are growing in this country, which are largely latinos. and it will make it impossible for them to break into that voting block. the only way they can win is by changing the rules. i know i can cite some great philosophers but gary trudeau has been citing the politics that we'll just change the election by changes the votes and you can see it in dunes bury. there was no photo i.d. that was the way to diminish the vote of young people and african-americans and other minorities. what it did was so enrage the african-american community they got out

[ laughter ] we can move closer. we can walk closer than this. let's just walk. okay. so it was off to a slow start. we have have the right day today, right? this is it? we can pick it up. we can really move. i was expecting a few more people than this. >> just wait around. you'll see. they coming. >> this feels a bit more like an ultimate frisbee signup. this is nice. >> slightly less people than in 2009 but they more than made up for it with enthusiasm. how excited are you to be here? >> i'm tired. >> yay! >> yay! >> yay! >> last time it felt like an historic event. this one feels more like a constitutionally mandated process. >> ah, i would say so. >> what was wrong with these people? 2009 they understood the scale of what is happening. >> for me it's the most historic event that is happening. >> number one. >> number one in terms of history of the world. it's better th

[ applause ] good evening. our town hall is going in a few minutes but we begin with breaking news on another
obama another four years, a number of supreme court justices well into their 70s, so he could tilt what is seen generally as a fight for -- maybe center right court to one that could easy tip left and change court decisions, union and otherwise, for decades to come. >> that's certainly a possibility. it's a dangerous. it would take an extraordinary degree of activism to do that. the law that allow states right to work laws was passed in 1947. the supreme court dominated by the president roosevelt's appointees, very, very liberal president, upheld it. you know, for decades you had liberal and conservative justices saying this is what the law says. neil: not worried even if the court tips left? >> i think right to work is safe. neil: and unions, safe to say, under pressure? >> they are just going to have to persuade the members they offer services paid for. they have not been able to do that. neil: we'll watch. got the president reelected. >> spend hundreds of millions of dollars to do it. other members had little say in the spending. neil: james, thank you very much. in the meantime, can
president barack obama's inaugural address was a campaign style stump speech and years from now not only remembered for his divisive combative tone, but exposed the blueprint for obama's radical second term agenda. let's take a look. >> we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care. we will respond to the threat of climate change. our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law. our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. >> sean: all right. while obama remains health bent on tackling national security threats like climate change, the president made no substantive reference toss economic matters like putting you the american people back to work or address the single big s threat we face as a countrt of course, being the rise of islamic extremism. instead he wants you to believe that all is right with the world.
. president obama spent the first four year i trying to get along with the republicans. they wouldn't do it. he's back in office, and leading up until yesterday, refused to cooperate. he drew the line in the sand, and, you know, it started to work. republicans came to the senses, okay, not touching the debt ceiling, let it float. in return, you see the democrats in the senate drawing up a budget. i think obama's -- his olive branch is, okay, i'll take this one extension to bring stability to the situation, but it's not happening again because we have to get the job doab. it's progress. it's better than the last few months. lou: some combative about it and characterize the president as being so contentious. it's the first intelligent step taken by the republicans and gives, you know, i i think hope to the nation, the first intelligent step taken by the president. they actually are moving towards one another. it looked to me like something we ought to be kind of saying hallelujah about other than analyzing, if i may, in such, well, i don't know, unsettling parts of the terms. >> it's progress
more >> john: you know, one of the loudest critics of president obama over the past year or so has been america's sweetheart, newt gingrich. yet even newt had to admit yesterday that the president's inauguration speech was, for the most part, "classically american." a speech about giving everyone the opportunity to succeed and to enjoy the same equality under the law? how could anyone, anyone find a problem with an inspiring speech about things like fairness and equal rights? >> simply impossible to do what the president wants to do. ensure prosperity and fairness for every american. can't be done. no matter how much money you spend. >> john: god bless that man. okay. i'm happy to concede the point that prosperity for every american is not a task that can ever be achieved which is probably why the president never said or suggested it, bill. but fairness, we've given up on fairness? i guess fox news will have to change its slogan. fox news, we're balanced, right kucinich? joining me now my panel of nonexperts joe derosa, comedian and co-author of "cheat". contributor to forbes.com,
president obama's first year in office and now the so-called no budget, no pay proposal. >> when i grew up, i had a lot of jobs and i had to work to get paid to do those jobs, so when i flipped burgers at mcdonald's or mowed lawns or painted houses i did the work and i got paid. i didn't get paid if i didn't do the work. it's the basic concept here, you do the work you get paid you don't do the work you shouldn't get paid. >> senator rob portman joins us. >> good to see you, greta. >> should be american people be outraged now that the house is suggesting a stop-gap measure and the president seemed obliged it that, should the american people are outraged we're sort of limping along. >> sure, 5 trillion dollars ago is the last time the senate had a budget. unbelievable, the debt has gone up by 5 trillion dollars and yet for almost four years now there hasn't been a budget and with a budget, as you know, comes regular poured meaning you have the appropriations process, so you actually have some oversight over government. instead what we do are the stop gap bills that, you know, frankly, we're
to have the four years of obama's hyper liberalism, the kind of stuff he elucidated and enuns dated yesterday in the inaugural address. and i would say that if our ideology, conservative, small government ideology is correct, it will leave a mess behind. but we will also need as conservatives, republicans if you like, a standard bearer in 2016 who can make the case. and there is not a dearth of them. we have a very strong bench. we have got ryan. we have got rubio. we have got the governors, there is a whole young generation of conservatives who can make the case that will be the test. although i will say that if liberals keep winning elections, then your theory of a fundamental change in the change of the electorate and the sense of dependency at which point it becomes a point of no return would be right. i'm just saying we he don't know history will tell us. >> bill: there is something wrong with we the people. there is something wrong now in this country. in the election of 2010 of the tamera emerged and republicans did well. they took the house back from the democrats and the su
four years the left wing media come to the defense of president obama no matter what the issue is. yesterday, covering the inauguration, the so-called media couldn't contain their giddiness or excitement. and here are examples of their reporting. >> shaun turned 16 and dad, i want to spend my 16th trip to see the inauguration, any regrets so far. >> not at all, not at all. a little bit of sleep. >> that's enough. >> that's enough. >> history is keeping you warm, right? >> exactly, outstanding. >> we're going to go now to bill weir who is out in the center of the mall and i heard you say earlier, bill, people are counting on history to keep them warm. >> absolutely. and the community, a sense of national pride on days like this. >> this is the moment that everybody is waiting for on inauguration day with the president and first lady step out of their limo and walk down pennsylvania avenue. you know, i feel like i should pinch myself right now, wolf. i can't believe i have this vantage point of history in the making. >> so your he' literally what, 15, 20 feet away from the president
: with are not worthy for another four years of president obama? despite the political system putting him in office again, white house communications director telling the washington post, listen to this, there's a moment of opportunity now that is important. what's frustrating is that we don't have a political system or an opposition party worthy of the opportunity. wow. with more on this, steven hayes, senior writer for the weekly standard. steven, how can we move forward if the president's press people say stuff like this? >> yeah, that was a remarkable comment. particularly, given the fact it was published on the president's, at least the ceremony yal inauguration day, and the day in which the president addressed the calling for civility and unity. you, i don't think he meant it. it's what we're looking here in washington is this kind of confrontational aggressive liberalism from the president, but you have to ask what did dan mean when he talked about a political system that's not worthy of the president? i mean, does he want the president to be able to make all of these decisions by fiat? by t
for president obama, a dignified elderly 92 year old woman named bernice opened the door in my get out the vote identification, identified her supporting equality. and she looked at me and she looked at my official obama pen that said lgbt for obama and she looked at me with tears in her eyes and she said, our time has really come, hasn't it? we both cried. that moment with bernice takes some of the pain of this day away. on this day i always feel a heightened affinity with my uncle for this was that night 34 years ago that i had to first reflect on my own conversations with harvey. anyone who has had conversations with harvey will know, you cannot get away easy. and he didn't let me as a teenager get away easy either. i had to reflect about the meaning of those conversations. it was a day that i had to look hard at what his love and guidance would mean to me that that was gone, that i could only think of the words and the conversations that we had. my uncle was moved by all extraordinary heroes of authenticity that he would see, particularly when it wasn't pretty or easy for them. that is in m
to vote to overturn that 40-year-old decision. when president obama leaned over to hug the rather fierce but rather small figure of 79-year-old supreme court justice ruth bader ginsburg yesterday at the capitol luncheon that was filled with all the washington vips, and president obama had that moment with ruth bader ginsburg, that physical contact, that hug between that particular justice and this particular president was a very real manifestation of the consequences of this election we just had. today outside the supreme court, as they do every year on the anniversary of roe, anti-abortion groups protested, expressing their view that it should be illegal to get an abortion in this country. there were also counter protests. people and groups supporting the decision defending abortion rights. the anniversary of the row v decision at the supreme court is one of the rare places where you actually see scenes like this where you have demonstrators who are against abortion rights right along side demonstrators who are for abortion rights. and they're all showing up together on this day at the

years ago president reagan was the political icon? with reagan in mind. president obama made his stand. >> this was a declaration that his interest is to restore us to the liberal of 60 years that reagan stopped he gave us these three decades and clinton in the middle of the three decades said it n. his 96th state of the union address the era of big government is over, this speech was a declaration the era of big government is back and it's back with a vengeance. let me give you a stark example of the choice all of us must make. years ago a man named rupert murdoch started a company called the news corporation. right now news corps employs 48,000 people worldwide. those people, and i am one of them, are given opportunity. i have seized that opportunity and done well. but president obama told me i did not build the factor alone. that the government somehow is partially responsible for my success well, it is true i take a road to work the long island expressway. believe me, that is not helping me succeed, mr. president, that road is a mess. and you won't fix it. by contrast, the presiden

and michael beschloss. >> i think par of what obama has to do in history is one line in the chart is the decline in household income. median household income. it's been falling for 12 years, the american dream a phrase going into the 1930's is in genuine peril, i'm not being yogi bear saying we're at the fork in the road and we should take the fork. it's a fact and the opportunity is going away. there may be a good business cycle coming but we know the long term trend here is heading in the wrong direction. >> rose: james taylor and presidentialis historians and journalists when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: james taylor's one of the most recognized voices in american music. the five-time grammy award winner sold close to 100 million albums. he's equally celebrated for his guitar playing, his lyrics and his distinct baritone voice. in 2011 taylor was awarded national medal of arts from the whitehouse and highest arne for artistic achievement. yesterday he performed president obama's seco
on health insurance. it's pretty good four years. at some point maybe to you charlie obama said if i'm a one term president i'd rather get this right than be a two term president. i don't want to say it's all downhill from here but so far if his biographers i think would have a favorable view of these four years. >> i think something else historian might notice that the current generation notices less and that is that for instance when richard nixon became president he inherited a foreign policy from lyndon johnson almost totally driven by prosecuting the vietnam war. he broad ened it with initiatives. barack obama when he inherited george bush's foreign policy combating terrorism to the exclusion often times of other thing, he's made this a much more balanced foreign policy and he's done it almost soundlessly. and i think that causes people sometime not to give him the credit. >> rose: doris kearns goodwin. >> i think, i'll take all three of them. >> rose: i know you will. >> the re-election really sert fies the legacy. think if he wasn't elected. maybe obamacare would have been undone in

though there's been four years of a barack obama presidency, for the wars in iraq and the wars in afghanistan and military interventions and the drone policy, and he was trying to say we can work peacefully. we have to build on the peacemakers, and i think that is a message that will be received by people in iran, will be received by certain communities in iran, but there is a big divide in iran. there's the qods force which feels very empowered and very aggressive. if he's extending an olive branch, i think there will be some parties in iran that will be taking it and other parties that will just be seeing this as some sort of trick because this administration has also been very tough on iran, particularly as far as sanctions are concerned. >> steve? first of all, do you think the message will get to the person it's intended for? >> i think there is. i think there's an audience of one, with due respect to richard whom i adore. but i think ayatollah khamenei is the person barack obama was trying to reach with this. we've seen in president ahmadinejad's speeches recently a relax

? >> we've shown today, we asked president obama after 4 1/2 years of addressing all this concerns and then some, to approve it. now if he doesn't move forward and approve it, i think we've shown that there is bipartisan support in the senate as well as the house it pass the legislation to authorize the project to go forward. i have got 58 votes. i had 58 people supporting the legislation last year. think if the president turns it down this time, i think that we can get the bipartisan sawn support to approve it. melissa: go ahead without him. is that possible? >> i think so. i think that's what we're showinging. there is broad bipartisan support because the american people want this project. they want the energy. they want the jobs. we don't want to be, look what is going on in the middle east. look at the hearings today on benghazi. look what is going on in syria and in iran. we don't want to be dependent on the middle east. melissa: no. absolutely. when you look at a map of the pipeline, he likes to say that he, the president, that he already approved the lower portion of it, the
. but as we know, yesterday, the president said he has big changes planned for the next four years. the question becomes, exactly what is he going to do? and abc's chief white house correspondent jonathan karl spent the day trying to find out. >> reporter: after the obamas left the big inaugural ball, they returned to the white house for a star-studded after hours party. celebrities posted photos well after midnight. but today, it's back to reality. president obama's inaugural speech outlined a boldly liberal vision that congressional republicans declared dead on arrival. >> unabashedly far left of center inauguration speech. obviously, it's not designed to bring us together. >> reporter: now that the inauguration is over, what is the president actually going to do? he dedicated more of the speech to climate change than any other one issue. >> we will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. >> reporter: that came as a surprise. during the campaign, the president spent more time touting the very fos
's happened in the last couple of weeks or so, republicans caved on taxes on new year's eve. i think obama peeled away 85 republican votes on tax hikes. what happened to this once, you know, rock-solid g.o.p. caucus even paul ryan voted with the president on that their bluff has been called on the debt ceiling. we don't want to shut down the government. so, it looks like republicans are fighting among themselves. so this debate is already underway in the republican party. >> yeah. the. >> the president understands this. that combined with the 332 electoral votes he got, i think he is in a stronger -- i think he is in a stronger position now than he has been probably in four years. so he has less incentive now to be mr. nice than he has in quite some time. i think we are seeing that. >> right. i was going to say, i think we see that he senses that as well. >> yeah. >> he feels that he is projecting it. i don't know whether -- i forget whether you were there the day he announced his measures on gun violence for example. >> yeah. >> that was straight o here is
that in the moment, it wasn't her voice. >> obama was lip-syncing, too. >> well, the last four years. >> mike barnicle's laughing about this.
